NY police to say more about deaths that included Canadian

GENESEO, N.Y. — Police are expected to release more information on the deaths of two college students — one of them a Canadian — and a former student at a house next to a western New York State college.

The three bodies were discovered Sunday morning near the State University of New York at Geneseo, about 55 kilometres south of Rochester.

The victims were identified as 24-year-old Matthew Hutchinson of Vancouver, British Columbia; 21-year-old Kelsey Annese of Webster, New York; and 24-year-old Colin Kingston of Geneseo, New York.

Police said Annese and Hutchinson were students at Geneseo and Kingston was a former student.

Police said they believe the perpetrator was one of the victims. Authorities scheduled a news conference Monday afternoon to provide updated information about the investigation.

Police said no firearm was used, but a knife was recovered.

Hutchinson played hockey in British Columbia for the Chilliwack Chiefs before starting school in the United States in 2012.

He was in his fourth year of university, studying geography and business, and volunteered as a firefighter.

Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version had a misspelling of the first name of one of the victims. His correct name is Colin Kingston.
